CoolingMedia.com has a helpful article providing three easy tips for helping prevent the growth of algae in evaporative cooling equipment. Because algae needs sunlight in order to grow one of the most helpful ways to help prevent algae is by shading the pad and the sump. The second tip for reducing algae growth is to make sure that the pads are allowed to dry out once every 24 hours. This is an effective means of reducing growth because without moisture algae will not grow. Finally, the third tip for reducing algae growth is to completely remove old evaporative cooling media pads. Algae needs nutrients to grow and old decomposing cooling pads provide a food source if not properly removed.
